I thought, I can’t do this. I’m just 2 weeks in the outlining, charactering, plotting phase, and still–it’s not going to happen. But, as writers, we tend to be a little sentimental about our stories–we dig hard enough, we can remember the moment where we thought, “This will be an awesome story.” And I found it. I will update you on how much having this (kernel idea) helps me as I go through the process, but for now– read the post (which is excellent). Give it a try.
